Muslim Rights and Wrongs

Daniel Greenfield

Over the last decade, the treatment of Muslims has dominated discussions about human rights in Europe, the United States and Israel. Whether it’s Jihadis seized on the battlefields of Afghanistan, domestic terrorists plotting death and destruction in London, Ramallah or Jersey City, asylum seekers from the coasts of Australia to England, or your regular old Abdul or Hamid who may be a law-abiding citizen or a fanatical mass murderer in waiting – the Western human rights debate over the last 10 years comes down to the treatment of Muslims.

 

But is that all there is to the story? While left wing “human rights organizations” such as Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International (which even went the trendy route of appointing a Muslim Secretary General) have dived into the business of protecting the rights of Muslims in the West with both feet, very little attention is paid to the rights of Hindus, Jews, Christians, Buddhists and others living in Muslim countries.

 

While the media plays up a real estate dispute between Jews and Muslims in Jerusalem as a major human rights story, the last Jews of Yemen are being evacuated after one of the community’s few remaining leaders was murdered by a Yemeni Air Force Pilot who ordered him to convert to Islam or die. Yemen in turn fined the pilot and offered to build the remaining Jews their own ghetto for “their own protection.” Naturally they chose to leave instead. And this is the life they described behind the “Sand Curtain” of Islam:

 

A spokesman for the Jewish Federations, who met the Yemeni Jews shortly after they arrived in America, said they described a climate of fear in Yemen. Jewish men had to wear Arab headdresses and wrap their peyot behind their ears to hide their identity. Women wore burkas. “They didn’t have any visible institutions like synagogues,” he said. “They had to meet in people’s apartments.” For the first time, the new immigrants have been hanging mezuzot on the outside of their doors instead of the inside, and openly celebrating festivals like Succot.

 

Yemeni Jews had been fleeing the country since the 19th century, a flow that only intensified when the Yemeni government began seizing orphaned Jewish children and converting them to Islam in the 1920s (one such child is the current President of Yemen). After the creation of the State of Israel, the majority of Yemen’s Jews fled the tide of Muslim violence. And now that last handful of what had been a community of tens of thousands is departing.

 

But what makes the story of Yemen so damning is that it actually is fairly tolerant by Muslim standards. And that the Jews of Yemen are only a small part of the more than 800,000 Jewish refugees from Muslim lands in the Middle East whose plight is ignored, while the media insists on photographing toothless Palestinian Muslim Arabs posing with house keys.

 

The 800,000 Jewish refugees are themselves only part of the story. The Armenian genocide and the Assyrian Holocaust both offer eloquent testimony to how Muslims treat non-Muslim minorities. As do the modern day persecutions of the Zoroastrians in Iran and the Christian Copts in Egypt, who are denied basic rights and whose daughters are routinely kidnapped for forced Islamic conversion.

 

While Muslims incessantly shout about their “rights” in Europe, America and Israel, it might be a good idea to take a look at how non-Muslim guest workers are treated in Muslim countries.

 

As much as 90 percent of Dubai is run by foreign guest workers who slave away for the Emirs. Thousands of them die annually in construction work to erect the magnificent skyscrapers designed by foreign architects and rented to foreigners that decorate Dubai’s skyline.

 

As much as 40 percent of Saudi Arabia consists of foreign guest workers who do everything for the fat bearded sons of Mahomet but wipe their behinds. And in some cases, even that as well. Saudi Arabia is built on the foreign oil companies they seized, built by American and British oil workers, serviced by Asian maids and African laborers. The latter have their passports seized by their employers, which transforms them into slaves of their employers without the right to even leave the country. The Saudis have built such a nightmarish slave state that it is one of the few rich countries in the world where guest workers actually try to get themselves deported. Without success.

 

The Saudi and Dubai slave states are all the more relevant because so many of the organizations clamoring for the rights of Muslims in the West are either Saudi fronts, such as CAIR, or Saudi funded, such as Human Rights Watch. And just as the USSR lectured America on civil rights while running the Gulags, Saudi Arabia oversees a nightmarish Islamic oligarchy in which non-Muslims have no rights, while demanding through its front groups that America throw open the doors to Guantanamo Bay, stop detaining Muslims for suspicious behavior, that Europe open wide for Islamic immigration and ban any criticism of Islam, and that Israel turn over land to terrorist organizations again funded by the Saudis.

 

But until the Muslim world gives the same rights to non-Muslims as to Muslims and the same rights to women as to men, Muslims have no right to make such demands of anyone else. When religious minorities can live in peace and security in the Muslim world, only then can Muslims issue demands to non-Muslim countries.

 

If Muslims abroad were treated as they treat others at home, they would enjoy few rights, their passports would be seized compelling them to work indefinitely, they would be murdered at random and their attackers let off with a fine, their children would be seized to be converted to another religion and their women would be jailed for not complying with local mores. Instead Muslims enjoy legal equality in their host countries, even as they spread the poison of an Islamist ideology that calls for the murder of non-Muslim. And sometimes act on it.

 

Not only are Muslims treated far better than they treat others by America, Europe, Israel and the other non-Muslim countries that they routinely malign for “oppressing” them, but they are treated far better than they themselves act while abroad.

 

Despite all the talk about hate crimes against mosques, Muslims abroad have committed far more violent attacks on other people’s houses of worship, than have been committed against theirs. Muslim rapes far outweigh any rapes of Muslims. Muslim terrorist attacks on non-Muslims far outweigh any terrorist attacks carried out against Muslims.

 

That is the real portrait of Muslim ingratitude and atrocities, thinly veiled by the endless barrage of “Religion of Peace” propaganda, and the squealing by Saudi front groups bewailing the fate of Muslims living high on the hog in Sydney, Paris or Haifa, while spinning their favorite anthem of Death to Everyone Who Isn’t Us.

 

Muslim countries invite in non-Muslim tourists only to jail (Dubai) and murder (Egypt) them, despising non-Muslims and yet greedy for their gold. They rely on slave labor and yet fund lawfare and propaganda campaigns denouncing the U.S. detention of the same Taliban throat slitters that they funded as well. Egypt, where a third of the children are malnourished; Saudi Arabia, where even half the Muslim population has less legal rights than a dog (correction: dogs are actually forbidden in Saudi Arabia); or Pakistan, where it is easier for rapists to convict their victim of adultery, than for the victim to convict them of rape – all somehow manage to find the time to denounce the human rights of non-Muslim countries whose level of jurisprudence they couldn’t reach with all the skyscrapers in Dubai.

 

Perhaps before Muslim bleat about their rights, they should first begin honoring the rights of non-Muslims.

  7. I have learned several important things through your post. I would also like to convey that there will be a situation in which you will have a loan and never need a co-signer such as a U.S. Student Aid Loan. However, if you are getting credit through a standard financial institution then you need to be ready to have a co-signer ready to assist you to. The lenders can base any decision using a few aspects but the most important will be your credit ratings. There are some lenders that will furthermore look at your work history and make a decision based on that but in most cases it will hinge on your scores.

    Well it would be nice wouldn't it? But that isn't how Islam operates is it?Islam demands its rights and freedoms, whilst simultaneously taking away the rights and freedoms of the "kaffir" (once in a position to do so)."When I was in power you demanded your rights and freedoms, because that was according to my principles. When you took power you took away my rights and freedoms, because that was according to yours."Islam never has been, is not and never will be even-handed.

    "But is that all there is to the story?

For those following this scandal (and it's unfortunate that so far Christopher Hitchen's Slate <a class="blue" href="http://www.slate.com/id/2244802/">column was the only stateside outlet to cover what's become a liberal tempest in the UK), the news in this piece is just how hypocritical Sahgal's bosses are now to claim that the evidence against Begg is mere "innuendo." Sahgal was promoted to her last post — as head of the gender affairs unit — only after she insisted on being allowed to flush out Begg's politics and draft a report on why he was no friend to human rights:<p class="font14b black"> <p class="font14b black"> <blockquote class="font12b black" style="margin-left: 30px;">Amnesty continues to defend its affiliation with Mr. Begg and Cageprisoners. Last week, on a Canadian radio program, Amnesty's interim Secretary General Claudio Cordone described Mr. Begg's politics as benign, saying there was so far no evidence to suggest that the organization should sever ties with him. <p class=" black">This is nonsense, says Ms. Sahgal via telephone in her home in London. "Amnesty has messaged him as a human-rights advocate . . . He was in Taliban Afghanistan. He was not a charity worker."<p class=" black"> <p class=" black">Especially galling for Ms. Sahgal is the fact that she only accepted her job after insisting to Widney Brown, senior director of International Law and Policy at Amnesty, that she be allowed to address the Begg alliance.<p class=" black"> <p class="font14b black">"I told her, 'If you don't give me the power to clean up this Begg situation, I won't take on the gender affairs assignment. Widney encouraged me to write a memo on it and even came past my office late one night while I was writing to discuss it. There was no internal resistance against this. So I was promoted with full support. Then, when the Sunday Times story broke, everything I uncovered was deemed 'innuendo.'"

    Moslem scum bags have a different sense of right and wrong! compared to the rest of non moslem population.Child molesting and child screwing is right and a pious act which pimp allah loves and rapist mohammad followed. Wrong as per any normal human being.Moslem scum bags think killing in the name of pimp allah is right! Any normal sane human being would say no.Lying,cheating, thieving etc in the name of allah are all normal pious moslem scum bag acts but abnormal as per normal human beings.Raping  is a normal pious moslem act and normal.Any sane human being would say noLeaving the work half done and stop the work to bang the head is a normal moslem scum bag act and abnormal as per sane human beings.Need I elaborate more?
